Students will be able to practice simple addition.
Introduction (10 minutes)
- Ask students to find various items around the room. For instance, call on a student to find one toy. Then, call on another student to find two chairs.
- After you have about 10 items, ask students how many items they have all together.
- Inform the students that they just practiced simple addition!
Explicit Instruction/Teacher Modeling (15 minutes)
- Play Wally's Wonderful Wheel Emporium.
- Encourage students to pay attention and practice adding along with Wally!
Guided Practice/Interactive Modeling (15 minutes)
- Now, give each student a handful of shaving cream. Invite students to practice drawing 1 wheel. Then, have them add another.
- Ask students how many wheels they have all together.
- Have students practice making various addition problems independently. They may need guidance through this.
Independent Working Time (5 minutes)
- Now, have students complete the Caterpillar Addition worksheet independently.
- Walk around the classroom to make sure all students are on task.
- Enrichment: Have students in need of enrichment work with struggling students during the shaving cream activity.
- Support: Students having difficulty adding in the shaving cream activity should be paired with another student.
- Assessment should be based on the outcome of the worksheet.
Review and Closing (15 minutes)
- Call students up one at a time to the board.
- Invite them to draw a wheel like Wally, or another object, and demonstrate a simple addition problem. If they need help, draw the object for them and have them count until they have the answer!
